“Italy lovers from Finland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We have visited several places in Italy and this year trip (two weeks) was our second time in Certaldo and apartment in Podere Casasole. It is easy to agree with the other reviews: we chose "Il Caratello" because we knew the apartment is spacious enough to accommodate our 4 person family, quite new, beautiful and tidy. The kitchen is well eqipped and perfect for cooking. Lovely terrace for eating and spending time with a beautiful view. The pool is great for our boys and adults too. The owners are very friendly and helpful. If you wish to get very good Tuscany dinner, ask the the owner Lady to make it - she is an excellent cook !
The location is perfect for daytrips to Pisa, Florence, Siena etc. Car is neccessary to be able to visit supermarkets and other targets in Certaldo city. The road nearby didn't bother us.
We will choose the same apartment when we'll visit Tuscany again !

The third time, that we were in Certaldo. So we are able to compare to other locations. In total our stay was very nice and relaxing. We had a warm welcome from the owner. The appartment is very goog appointed, Everything what you need is there, clean and more or less new. The swimming ool was excellent regarding size and cleanneas. There is a country road in the near. But is not really desturbing you. W-Lan access was a little tricky. Best access was at the pool. Last but not least one argument to come back: Pupino, the little dog from the owner. Sooooo cute and nice!! Thanks for an unforgettable stay.

We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. POdere Casalsole is located near San Gimignano and offers fine possibilities to visit Tuscany. When staying on the premises, you get spoiled: the most beautifully decorated appartments we have ever been to, in a quiet and peaceful environment: in the evenings we saw dear playing on the fields... Enjoy your stay in Tuscany!

We enjoyed our stay in September. The apartment was very well equipped & the owners responsive to our needs. They provided several cycling routes for us on back roads leaving from the apartment. We rode through olive groves & vineyards enjoying the countryside & San Gimignano. The setting was tranquil, but close to the train station for a day trip to Siena. We were very happy with the rental & it suited our cycling vacation well.

Really nice, clean and spacious apartments ! Nice pool, with great view. Lovely sunsets, wonderful view over countryside and Certaldo Alto. Very good base to explore Tuscan. Supermarkets not too far away and even open on Sunday. Certaldo Alto and San Gimignano perfect for a visit in the evening. Owners have really lovely little dog who comes to visit the guests every night and plays with the kids. Excellent with older kids. Trainstation not to far away, so you can visit Florence by train. All the other historic towns are perfectly visitable by car. Owners are very nice, friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic 2 weeks stay and we will return one of the next years !
